The University 

ON the last day of May, in the year 1850, there met in the City 
of Chicago, at the office of Grant Goodrich, 109 Lake Street, 
near Dearborn, nine men, Richard A. Blanchard, Jabez K. 
Botsford, Andrew J. Brown, Henry W. Clark, John Evans, Grant 
Goodrich, Zadoc Hall, Richard Haney, and Orrington Lunt, to con- 
sider the founding of a university in the vicinity of Chicago. They 
agreed that "the interests of Christian learning demand the immediate 
establishment of a University in the Northwest," and appointed a 
committee to petition the General Assembly for a charter. January 
28, in the next year, 1851, Governor French signed the Act that 
incorporated "the Trustees of the Northwestern University." The 
name of the corporation has since been changed to Northwestern 

The first Board of Trustees consisted of thirty-six persons, some 
of whom were representatives of annual conferences of the Methodist 
Episcopal Church and some residents of Chicago or vicinity. The 
corporation as at present constituted consists of thirty-six trustees 
elected by the Board, and two elected by each of three annual con- 
ferences of the Methodist Episcopal Church, making a total of forty- 

The charter provides that a majority of the Board shall be mem- 
bers of the Methodist Episcopal Church, but that no particular 
religious faith shall be required for those who become students at the 

Amendments have provided that other chartered institutions may 
become departments of the University; that all property of whatever 
kind or description belonging to or owned by the said corporation 
shall be forever free from taxation for any and all purposes ; that no 
spirituous, vinous, or fermented liquors shall be sold under license or 
otherwise within four miles of the location of the University. 

After considering several locations in the vicinity of Chicago, the 
Trustees selected for the University a tract of land on the shore of 
Lake Michigan, twelve miles north of the heart of Chicago. Here 
in 1855 the first University building was erected, and about this 
location has grown up the City of Evanston, a beautiful residential 
city of thirty thousand inhabitants. The professional schools of 
Medicine, Law, Dentistry, and Commerce are situated in the city of

The Dental School 

THE DENTAL SCHOOL was founded and is maintained for 
the purpose of preparing young men and young women in the 
most thorough manner for the practice of dentistry, and for 
the promotion of dental science and dental literature. 

The reputation earned by this School is well shown by the tabu- 
lation, on page 46, of the geographical distribution of students in 
attendance during the past year, from thirty-seven states and four 
foreign countries. 

The Dental School was organized in 1887 an d three years later 
became a department of the University. In 1896 it absorbed the 
American College of Dental Surgery and for some years occupied 
the building on Franklin and Madison Streets, Chicago. It is now 
located in Northwestern University Building, at the corner of Lake 
and Dearborn Streets, Chicago, occupying the upper three floors of 
the building, over 60,000 square feet. 

The following men are deserving of permanent recognition for 
their devotion to this School, as evidenced by their work in its 
development: Doctors Thomas L. Gilmer, G. V. Black, Edgar D. 
Swain, George H. Cushing, Theodore Menges, C. R. E. Koch, 
\V. V-B. Ames and James H. Prothero. 


Northwestern University Building is in the transportation center 
of over three millions of people living within a radius of forty miles, 
a location especially advantageous for obtaining the great number of 
clinical patients needed in a dental school. See page 15 for statement 
of number of patients and operations performed during the last School 

The operative clinic, sufficient in extent to accommodate the great 
clinic and the offices connected with it, is of the best design of con- 
struction, consisting of a single room with arched ceiling. It is on 
the sixth floor, with free light on two sides and abundant skylight. 
Adjoining the operative clinic is the prosthetic clinic, and on the same 
floor the special clinic for pulp treatments, the senior prosthetic lab- 
orator}' for crown and bridge work, the laboratory for porcelain and 
cast metal inlay work, an impression room, and two rooms and wait- 
ing-room for extracting, and a room devoted to radiographic work. 
There are seven lecture-rooms, three of which are arranged on the 
amphitheater plan and have seats for 240 students. One of these 


is for the oral surgery clinic which has a waiting-room for surgical 
patients, a room for diagnosis and the preparation of patients, and 
a recovery room with sufficient beds for the temporary care of 
patients. The other four lecture rooms have seats for 175, 125, ioo. 
and 75 students. There are eight recitation rooms, each accom- 
modating thirty-five or more students. Other rooms are the anatom- 
ical laboratory, which is placed well apart, and the laboratories for 
prosthetic technics, operative technics, chemistry, biology, histology, 
physiology, general pathology, bacteriology, materia medica, and for 
physics; the students' reading-room, the library, and the museum. 

A new laboratory for scientific research is 'equipped with every 
facility for advance study of the many unsolved problems which 
confront the dental profession. This laboratory has every conven- 
ience for bacteriological study, animal experimentation and the study 
of human material from the general and oral surgery clinics. 


The Library and the adjoining reading-room occupy, together 
with the attached Journal Reading Room, 5,400 feet of floor space. 
It is furnished with reading tables and chairs for about one hun- 
dred students. The Library contains 7,429 volumes of books on 
dental and collateral subjects; a fine supply of dictionaries and ency- 
clopedias conveniently placed in the reading-room for easy consulta- 
tion ; and a nearly complete list of the dental journals that have been 
published in the English language, with about 85,000 duplicate num- 
bers. The books most used by the students are duplicated, up to 
six or twelve, and a few T to fifteen copies. The books and journals 
may be used in the reading-room without restriction, and when the 
duplication of volumes will allow, they may be drawn out as a 
circulating library. 


The Museum, which in many of its sections is the most com- 
plete collection of illustrative material in existence, is open to inspec- 
tion and study. The cases are arranged to show the specimens to 
the best advantage. 

Recently the very extensive private collection of Dr. William 
Bebb has been added to the Museum under the title of the Bebb 
Collection. This collection consists of paleontological and modern 
animal and human bones, skeletons and skulls; many varieties of 
preserved fur animals, and a very choice collection of ancient and 


modern-obsolete dental instruments, tools and equipment ; many 
volumes of rare old books on dentistry in various languages; and 
engravings, paintings, lithographs, and cartoons illustrative of the 
development of dentistry. All of these have been arranged in most 
attractive manner for exhibition and study. 

The comparative anatomy specimens consist of heads with the 
teeth, with the exception of the gorilla and chimpanzee, of which there 
are full skeletons. There is a sufficient number of varieties of each of 
the several orders to afford specimens of every kind of tooth form 
and of every variety of placement in mammals, saurians, and snakes, 
with a large variety of fishes. 

The principal specimens of human skulls are, first, an excellent 
mounting of the separated bones of the adult; second, a fine set of 
dissections in a series showing the development of the teeth and the 
roots from the first appearance in the fetus to the full adult devel- 
opment, and illustrating the absorption of the roots of the deciduous 
teeth, the shedding process, and the replacement by permanent teeth; 
also the absorption of the alveolar processes after the loss of teeth, 
with the changes that occur in the form of the bones of the jaws 
from childhood to old age. 

The Museum contains also a valuable collection of human teeth 
of abnormal forms; a very full and complete set of specimens illus- 
trating interproximal wear and the flattening of the points of inter- 
proximal contact. It is especially rich in casts oi cases of super- 
numerary teeth ; some illustrations of the very early ioVns of artificial 
teeth, of manufactured porcelain teeth, and of dental instruments, 
illustrating the development in these lines. This collection has been 
made in the School largely by students and by alumni, and is being 
continually increased by donations from those who have met with 
specimens unusual or rare in practice. 

It also contains a most complete representation of the progress 
of Dental Hygiene and Prophylaxis as represented by the progressive 
steps of the development of the toothbrush, and a complete collection 
of dental instruments and appliances now obsolete in modern prac- 
tice of dentistry. 


The central location of the school and its convenient access from 
every point affords many and peculiar advantages to its students. 
It gives them the widest possible range of choice of residence while 
attending the school, without inconvenience in coming and going. 


It also gives the school the widest range of territory from which to 
draw the extensive clinic so necessary to a great dental school. The 
patients for this clinic come from all parts of the city of Chicago 
and its suburbs. The personal influence of the students of i-he 
school, each one of whom draws from his own friends and acquaint- 
ances, made in and about his place of residence, is an invaluable 
adjunct to the number who come simply as acquaintances of the 
school. Patients who come as the friends of students make up the 
personal clinical practice of the individual student. 

In this the out-of-town students seem to be in no respect less 
favored than the student whose home is in the city. This gaining, 
and holding, a personal clinical practice under the supervision of 
the instructors in the clinic rooms has come to be one of the features 
of this school that has a telling effect upon the after-practice of its 
students. By this plan of work the student not only learns the 
theory ot practice and the manipulations of practical operations in 
dentistry, but he passes at once to the work of real experience in 
building a practice for himself; in gaining that skill in professional 
comity and personal manner between himself and his patients, which 
is as necessary to him in after years, in drawing together and main- 
taining a practice, as his knowledge of dental diseases and his skill 
in their treatment. 

For these reasons the residence ot students in groups in widely 
different portions of the city is favored. This also gives the benefits 
of a more homelike life, while giving in the aggregate a far better 
conception of life in a great city and decidedly better opportunity 
to draw upon its advantages, while shunning the disadvantages of 
large gatherings of students in a single locality. 

Chicago is a great city and gives many opportunities to the stu- 
dent who learns to avail himself of them. Lincoln Park on the 
north offers, besides its beautiful pleasure grounds, some extensive 
botanical gardens and winter conservatories, where all manner of 
plants may be enjoyed and studied; a fine zoological collection, 
where a large variety of animal and bird life may be studied, and 
the Museum of Natural History, in which there is a very large 
collection of birds, animals and fossil remains of extinct animal life. 
Jackson and Washington Parks on the south, besides their extensive 
pleasure grounds, also offer splendid botanical gardens and winter 
conservatories. The new Field Columbian Museum, located in 
Grant Park, offers a rare collection of Natural History specimens 
especially suited for the study of comparative dental anatomy, of 


modern and ancient skulls and the condition of the teeth in the vari- 
ous races and types of men in different ages. The admission to this 
museum is free to students on presentation of their matriculation 
tickets to this school. 

The Art Institute of Chicago is located within easy walking 
distance of the School; it offers many free admission hours, making 
its cultural opportunities conveniently available. 


A number of libraries are accessible to students who have taste 
for study, or for looking up subjects of scientific or literary interest, 
or in connection with special studies. 

The University library collections offer very abundant facilities 
for students. They are ample in the number of books adapted to 
the different schools and are so situated as to be easily accessible ; 
generally within the school buildings. They consist of the College 
Library, the Law Library, the Medical Library and the Theological 

Chicago Library (1.087,286 volumes) is on Michigan Avenue 
and Washington Street, five minutes' walk from the School. It is 
one of the finest libraries in the country. Students may receive books 
from this library when vouched for by responsible persons known 
to the officials. This library has also many branch offices in different 
parts of the city, from which books may be received on application. 
These are convenient to many of the boarding places of students. 

The Newberry Library is very large (386.000 volumes) and, 
besides general works, has also a large collection devoted to history. 
It is on North Clark Street and Walton Place, and may be reached 
in a ten minutes' walk. This is a reference library and books can 
be used only in its reading rooms. 

The John Crerar Library (450,000 volumes) occupies its 
own building, corner Michigan Boulevard and Randolph Street, five 
minutes' walk from the School. It is devoted mainly to the natural, 
the physical and the social sciences, with their applications, but has 
one large room containing medical and dental books and periodicals. 
It is a most excellent collection of books. It is a reference library, 
and its books are used only in its reading rooms. 


Admission and Instruction 

In teaching staff, requirements for admission, curriculum, equip- 
ment and facilities of every kind, Northwestern University Dental 
School complies fully with the rules of the Dental Educational 
Council of America for Class A Dental Schools. This School is 
one of ten dental schools selected by the United States Government 
for the establishment of Reserve Officers' Training Corps. 

Attention is directed to the change in entrance requirements for 
the year 1 921- 1922. Dentistry needs more practitioners with broader 
education, and all who can afford to do so are urged to take more 
than one year in a College of Liberal Arts before entering dental 
school. Extra time devoted to college courses will be of much ad- 
vantage in the future. 


Beginning with the school year 192 1 -1922, one year of Liberal 
Arts will be required for admission to the Dental course. 

A candidate for admission may be accepted on presentation of the 
following credits: 

High School: Fifteen units from an accredited high school or 
academy, which shall include three units of English, two units of 
foreign language, one unit of algebra, one unit of geometry and 
one unit of physics. The remaining seven units may be made up 
of other subjects in standard High School courses. 

College : Thirty semester-hours in a College of Liberal Arts 
which is recognized by Northwestern University, which shall include 
six semester-hours of English, six semester-hours of inorganic chem- 
istry and six semester-hours of zoology or biology. 

, If physics is not offered for entrance, it must be taken during 
the first year of the dental course. High school chemistry, biology 
or zoology cannot be substituted for the college credits required in 
chemistry and zoology. 

This School will receive no student who is not present within 
ten days after the opening day of the session in each year, or in case 
of illness properly certified by the attending physician, within twenty 
days after the opening day. It is desirable that students should 
register early, since the order of assignment of seats in the lecture 
halls is based on the order of registration. The record of attend- 
ance is kept from the opening day, and students who may be admitted 


at a later day will lose their attendance credit for the intervening 

Undergraduate students are not received for special courses. 


Students wishing credit for courses parallel to courses required in 
this School should bring credentials for same, and should present 
their notebooks. 

Students who present certificates from other dental schools 
covering subjects required in this School may be credited with such 
studies if the credentials are satisfactory to the Dean and to the 
professors in the respective departments; but credits are not accepted 
unconditionally. The Faculty reserves the right to examine any 
applicant for advanced standing, if in its judgment that should be 

No student will be accepted by transfer for matriculation in the 
sophomore or junior class unless the previous record is creditable and 
without a condition. Students will not be accepted by transfer from 
other schools for matriculation in the senior class, except in cases in 
which credentials and other evidence show the applicant to be ex- 
ceptionally well qualified. Credentials of all students applying for 
advanced standing must be approved by the Committee on Creden- 
tials for Advanced Standing. 

Examinations for advanced standing and for the removal of con- 
ditions in the Dental course w r ill begin on September 26, 1921 — 
one week before the course begins — and no make-up examinations 
nil I be given at a later time. A schedule of these examinations will 
be furnished upon request. 


The course covers four years. The year begins on the first Tues- 
day in October and closes on Commencement Day of the University 
in June. There are not less than thirty-two weeks of actual instruc- 
tion given, six days in each week. 


At the request of the Surgeon-General of the Army, a Reserve 
Officers' Training Corps was established during the year 1 920-1 921. 
This course is optional in the Freshman and Sophomore years for all 
students who can pass physical examinations, except aliens. Those 
who, at the beginning of the Junior year, are given the opportunity 
and choose to continue through the remainder of the course, must 


meet all requirements, as in other courses, to graduate. R.O.T.C. 
students will be required to attend a medical military camp for six 
weeks during the summer following the Junior year. Each R.O.T.C. 
student will receive about sixteen dollars per month during the 
Junior and Senior years, and thirty dollars per month, also trans- 
portation, quarters, rations, etc., during the summer camp. Uni- 
forms will not be worn, and there will be no military training or 
drills, except in the summer camp. R.O.T.C. graduates will be 
eligible for service in the Army Dental Corps, but cannot be called 
for service except in case of war. 


A post-graduate, or practitioner's, course has been arranged which 
begins the first Monday in February of each year and continues 
through four full weeks. A special announcement of this course will 
be sent on request. See page 45 for list of those who took post- 
graduate course in February, 1921. 


A dental hygienist's course has been arranged for young women, 
and will be given during the year 192 1- 1922, provided the Illinois 
Legislature enacts a law authorizing the licensing of dental hygienists. 
The course will begin the first Tuesday in October, and continue 
until June. A special announcement will be sent on request. 


Students who desire to obtain the Bachelor of Science and Doctor 
of Dental Surgery degrees may enroll on a combined Literary and 
Dental course, and thus shorten the required time for earning the 
two degrees from eight to seven years. 

Students who desire to obtain the degrees of Doctor of Medicine 
and Doctor of Dental Surgery may enroll for a combined medical 
and dental course, and thus shorten the time of earning these degrees 
from nine to seven years, which includes one year of hospital intern- 
ship. In order to enroll for this course it will be necessary for the 
student to have completed the two required pre-medical years in a 
College of Liberal Arts. 

Students who desire to obtain the three degrees, Bachelor of 
Science, Doctor of Medicine and Doctor of Dental Surgery, may do 
so by taking three years in the College of Liberal Arts before entering 
upon the combined medical and dental course. 

Details regarding the combined courses will be furnished upon 
;i Implication. 


General Statements 


The degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery is conferred upon stu- 
dents recommended therefor by the Faculty of the School. Candi- 
dates are recommended who have attended the required courses of 
lectures, who have passed satisfactorily all required examinations in 
the subjects of study; who have completed the required clinical and 
laboratory work; who in the judgment of the Faculty are of fit moral 
character and are twenty-one years of age, and who have discharged 
in full all financial obligations to the University. 


A dental scholastic honor society, the Omicron Kappa Upsilon, 
was organized in 1916, upon the initiative of Northwestern Univer- 
sity Dental School. 

Membership is awarded to students who throughout their dental 
course have met every requirement without condition or failure, and 
whose record of grades earned during their entire course gives them 
highest rank. Twelve per cent of the graduating class of each year 
can achieve the honor of such membership. 


The clinic rooms will be open all the year for the benefit of 
students who may wish to gain greater experience in clinical practice 
under competent supervision. The number of demonstrators during 
the summer will be ample for the class that may choose to remain 
at the school. The clinical material is abundant, and an excellent 
opportunity is afforded for clinical practice. 


The value and adequacy of the clinical instruction and experi- 
ence in practice to students is inestimable. The extent of it can be 
best understood by an examination of the subjoined statement of 
patients cared for and operations performed during each year from 
191 3 to 1920. 

Due to the change from the three- to the four-year course, both 
the Senior and Junior classes for 1919-20 and 1920-21 were un- 
usually small, and it was impossible to care for many persons who 
applied for clinic service. The number of patients and the operations 

16 N O RTHW E S T E R N U N I V E R S I T Y 

mentioned for these years are therefore considerably less than the 
School's average:

Text-books and reference books will be on sale in the Library of 
the school at publishers' prices. There will be a small profit from 
the sale of these books, which will be used for the benefit of the 
library. Each student will be required to have the books designated 
before participating in either recitation or laboratory exercises. Many 
reference books in the library may be used as needed. 


The instruments essential to the students in the several depart- 
ments of the school have been carefully studied and determined. 
Much care has been taken in the selection of the instrument sets that 
the variety of forms may be sufficient for the student's needs without 
being excessive. Close study of this subject and long, careful obser- 
vation of students and the progress they make in the attainment of 
manipulative skill show their progress to be closely related to their 
instrument equipment. Therefore this school must demand that the 
instrument sets required be obtained by each student as a condition 
to his continuance in school work. 

In operative dentistry it is found that a close adherence to the 
formula plan, in the study of cutting instruments particularly, is 
essential in teaching the important subject of cavity preparation, and 
this will be carried out critically in all the departments of the school. 
This teaching is begun in the technic classes and the same lines of 
instruction are followed progressively by teachers and demonstrators 
in all of the departments to the end of the Senior year, the same 
instrument sets being used throughout the course of study. 

In prosthetic dentistry and in the several laboratories a similar 
care as to instruments is maintained. 


Fees and Expenses 


Matriculation Fee $IO.OO 

This fee is to be paid when a student first matriculates in an} 7 
department of the University, and covers subsequent matriculations 
in the same or other departments. It is to be paid but once and is in 
no case returnable. 

Registration Deposit, each year $10.00 

This deposit must be paid when names are enrolled for classes. 
It will be credited on the tuition fee for the current year. It is not 
returnable in case the student fails to attend. If the first matricula- 
tion of the student is in the Dental School, the matriculation fee will 
serve as a registration fee for that year, but the matriculation fee is 
not credited on the tuition fee. 

Tuition Fee, each year $250.00 

This fee includes the registration deposit, but not the matricula- 
tion fee. It includes all laboratory fees for equipment and supplies, 
but not for manuals and notebooks. Each student is provided with 
a locker for the protection of his private property. Each Freshman 
will be charged for three new padlocks for his lockers. Each student 
operating in the clinic will be charged a towel fee each year. 

Final Examination fee, for Seniors $20.00 

Time of Payment of Tuition — The tuition fee is payable at the 
beginning of the school year. It may be paid in two installments. 
Si 25.00 at the beginning of the first semester and $125.00 at the 
beginning of the second semester. If installments are not paid within 
ten days of the opening of the semester, $2.00 will be added, but 
in no case may payment be deferred more than thirty days. Payments 
should be made in currency or in Chicago exchange drawn to the 
order of Northwestern University. Out-of-town personal checks are 
not accepted. 

Refunds — No fees for tuition will be refunded except in cases 
of sickness. If on account of serious illness a student withdraws 
from the School before the end of the school year, a share of his 
tuition fee may be refunded, provided he secures from the Dean a 
statement of honorable standing, and from a physician a certificate 
that his health will not permit him to remain in attendance. No 


application for a refund will be considered unless made within thirty 
days after withdrawal from the School on account of sickness. 


The amounts given below are as nearly correct as can be de- 
termined in advance, owing to the changes which may occur in prices 
or in the selection of books, instruments and other equipment. As 
many of the books and almost all of the other equipment listed for 
each of the first three years are required in the succeeding years, 
the figures given apply only to those students entering this school as 
Freshmen. Students entering with advanced standing, or by transfer 
from other Dental Schools, will be required to purchase whatever 
may be necessary of the books and equipment listed for preceding 

For the year 1921-22, the School will supply the books and 
equipment for the several classes. In order to reduce the cost of 
equipment as much as possible, the School will supply certain items, 
such as student operating cases, etc., w r hich the student will not need 
after graduation, upon a rental basis. 

Every student is required to purchase the complete outfit of 
books and equipment from the School. 

The student should come prepared to pay for the complete outfit 
of books and instruments at the opening of school, in addition to at 
least the first semester tuition. 



Freshman year, books as per required list, about $ 50.00 

Instruments and other equipment, as per required list, about 140.00 


Sophomore year, books, about $ 20.00 

Instruments and other equipment, about 225.00 


Junior year, books, about $ 35-o° 

Instruments and other equipment, about 25.00 

$ 60.00 
Senior year, books, about $ 15.00 


Freshman year, matriculation, tuition, books and equipment $ 450.00 

Sophomore year, tuition, books and equipment 495-°° 

Junior year, tuition, books and equipment 310.00 

Senior year, tuition, final examination fee, books and equipment. . . . 285.00 

TOTAL $1,540.00 


This is an average of about $385.00 per year. The equipment 
includes practically everything required for a dentist's office, except 
dental chair and office furniture, so that while the expense for equip- 
ment in school is considerable, it should not be counted as a school 
expense, but rather as a part of the expense of office equipment. After 
the Sophomore year, the expense in addition to the tuition is small, so 
that the student is likely to be better prepared to meet the cost of 
office equipment at the time of graduation. 


The University is not responsible for the loss of any personal 
property belonging to any of the students in any building owned by 
the University, whether the loss occurs by theft, fire, or an unknown 


Students will be held responsible for unnecessary damage to or 
breakage of the apparatus, equipment, furniture or other property 
of the University. 

students' extra funds 

Students who bring with them larger amounts of funds than 
their immediate requirements necessitate may deposit the same in the 
University business office, in the rotunda on first floor, and draw on 
this deposit from time to time as needed, under such regulations as 
may be prescribed. 


Rooms and board may be obtained at about $15.00 a week. 
Rooms without board, furnished or unfurnished, may be had at 
about $25.00 a month. 

A department of the Y. M. C. A. is maintained in the Univer- 
sity Building, which looks especially to the students' interest in this 

In case students are compelled to do some outside work to assist 
them while attending school, this department will also endeavor to 
secure such employment as the student may be able to do without 
detriment to his educational work. 


The University dormitories are situated on the North Campus 
near the University Gymnasium, and within a five-minute walk to 
the Elevated trains with direct service to Chicago. 

Applications for the reservation of rooms should be made to the 
Secretary of the Dental School and should be accompanied by a 
deposit of $10. 


Courses— 1921-1922 

In 191 5-16, this School adopted the general plan of teaching by 
the division of classes into small sections for recitation and laboratory 
periods, in order that the student might receive more thorough in- 
struction. To accomplish this, the building was remodeled to pro- 
vide necessary additional rooms and laboratory facilities, and the 
teaching staff was increased in every department. 

A general rearrangement of courses has been made by which better 
co-ordination and sequence of related subjects has been obtained.
